The Fortunes of Pioneers

Small plots
and the roots of irrigation
rivers tapped
for the sustenance of Man
on tiny tracts of land
cut out – Manifestations
of the developments
of our ancestors.

One man’s land
shrouded in mists
is another man’s
Every-day.

Building mysteries
Like ants build colonies
Carving empires into sand
As we hover above
to behold the beauty
Of vast tracks of land
Leagues above the fray.
